Part 1: Directly Recover Call History from iPhone (iOS 9)

Step 1 Connect your iPhone and scan it

In this way, you need to have your iPhone at hand and get it connected to the computer at first. Then run the program and stay at the recovery mode of "Recover from iOS Devices". When you see the window shown on the right side, you can directly click on the "Start Scan" button to begin scanning your iPhone for lost call history.

Note: If you connect iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS or iPhone 3G, you also can get into the "Advanced Mode" to get a deeper scan. Then the program will lead you to scan your iPhone.

Step 2 Preview and recover deleted call history from iPhone

Once the program finishes scanning your iPhone, it'll present you a scan result showing all recoverable data on your iPhone, not only call logs, but also contacts, messages, photos, videos and so on. But you have the option to preview and decide which items you want to recover. Then tick them and click on the "Recover" button to save them all on your computer with one click.

Part 2: Recover iPhone Call History from iTunes backup

All or nothing, that's what iTunes backup lets us do. You only have the chance to restore everything in the iTunes backup file to your iPhone, or you restore nothing. There is no selectively restoring. What if we want to selectively restore some specific data from the backup? The method below is going to be pretty useful.

Step 1 Choose and extract iTunes backup file

You don't need to connect your iPhone to the computer when you choose this way, and don't do it, for the iTunes backup can be easily updated if you've enabled the automatic synchronization.

Simply launch the program on your computer and choose the mode of "Recover from iTunes Backup Files". Then you'll see that all backup files generated by iTunes on your computer are presented in a list by the program automatically. All you need to do is select the one for your iPhone or the one you want to extract, and click on the "Start Scan" button to get it extracted.

Step 2 Preview and recover iPhone call log from iTunes backup

The program can get the backup extracted in a few seconds. Once it's done, you can preview all contents in the backup in details. Choose the "Call History" menu on the left side. You can read your phone call history one by one. Tick the item you want to keep and save it to your computer by clicking on the "Recover" button.

Part 3: Restore iPhone Call History from iCloud backup

Just the same as iTunes, iCloud also doesn't allow you to preview or selective restore specific data from its backup. All you need to do is using a third-party tool that can help you extract the backup for selective recovery and restore. There is also such a way.

Step 1 Run the program and sign in your iCloud

Choose to use this way, you need to know your iCloud account, that's to say the Apple ID and the password, so that you can get the online iCloud backup down.

After running the program, switch to the mode of "Recover from iCloud Backup Files". Then you can directly sign in your iCloud account by putting in the Apple ID and the password. It's totally safe here. Wondershare won't keep or leak any information of your account and data.

Step 2 Download and scan the iCloud backup

When you've got in, the program can detect all backup files existing in your iCloud account. You can choose the one for your iPhone and click on the "Download" button to get it down to your computer. The downloading process will take you a few minutes. Get yourself a cup of coffee and wait for a moment.

Note: The downloaded file is only located on your computer. There is no record in the program or any other place.

Hi Randall, the recovery does not depend on when the data is deleted. For example, even if your data was deleted long time ago, but since then you haven't used your phone, the deleted data was not overwritten by new data, they still can be recovered. If the deleted data is overwritten, no recovery tools can recover them.
How far back will it retrieve the call log?
no, Unfortunately I did not backup for the last days :-(( ... thanks for your answer
Hi, as to this case, when did you delete the call history of 2-3 days ago´╝čIf the deleted data have been overwritten, the program will not be able to recover them. Have you ever backed up your phone to iTunes or iCloud recently? If yes, you can try to use Dr.Fone to scan the iTunes or iCloud backup.
Hi, I tried to recovery my history of calls. I see all the number of today and yesterday, but then I don't see the calls of 2-3 day ago. Why? there's a solution? thanks
The data recovery has little to do with the time. It depends on whether the data is overwritten or not. Overwrite means to record or copy new data over existing data, as in when a file or directory is updated. Data that is overwritten cannot be retrieved. As the free trial version and full version are functionally the same, you can test the trial version first to see whether it works.

Hi orange turned off my itemised bill between 13 jan - 13 feb and now say they have no history of calls; am I too late to recover a months worth of call listing during this period of time. Thanks for your time.
Hi, it doesn't show you the deleted call history mostly because the deleted call history has been overwritten by new data. There is no way to get it back any more. Sorry :(
Hi Selena. I just downloaded the software but it doesn't show me the deleted call history, i also use the other option of connecting my device to my lap but i got the same result.
Damian, you don't need to pay for the software if it can't help to get back your lost call history. You can use the trial version to scan your iPhone and iTunes backup to confirm whether your deleted call log is still here or not. Check the found data in the scan result first, and then decide if you need to buy it or not. As to your question, Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS allows you to selectively preview and recover whatever you want from either your device or iTunes backup. If you can get your data from iTunes backup and you'd like to restore them all to your iPhone, it's also an option. But if you want to keep existing data on your iPhone and also get the call log from the backup, Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS can be a nice choice. Just choose one for your convenience. :)
